Parliament Cracks Down on Party Drugs

Parliament ruled on Thursday that GBL and BD – drugs similar to GHB will be banned.

Gamma Butyro Lakton and Butandiol are mostly used for industrial cleaning but have caused problems, especially in Southern Sweden in the form of party drugs.

But instead of classifying them as narcotics, they have been stamped with the lesser, ”dangerous to your health” warning.

The Minister for Public Health and Social Services, Morgan Johansson said they didn’t want to ban the substances from the market completely as they’re more environmentally friendly than alternatives but Parliament’s decision does mean that it’s now against the law to be in possession of the drugs, or sell them.
